Battery storage: routes to market

25 February 2019


Listen in as Gowling WLG chats with leading global infrastructure and renewables market analysts Inspiratia about the revenue landscape for UK battery storage.

The manner in which - and the related business models under which - income streams supporting UK battery storage project development can be accessed remains central to deployment.

The saturation of frequency response and uncertainty around the capacity market have brought merchant trading strategies into sharp focus, and many of the aggregators are now developing new propositions to access the balancing mechanism.

However, the long-term regulatory picture is one of uncertainty, which could threaten the industry's access to cheap capital that is likely required to deliver gigawatts of battery capacity.

To discuss the market landscape, Energy Partner Gus Wood sat down with Inspiratia, and Joe MacDonald, vice president of sales at UK aggregator Limejump, focussing on:

  • Revenue oversaturation and stacking - 01:10
  • Capacity market suspension in the context of wider energy policy uncertainty - 07:19
  • Ofgem's targeted charging review - 16:59
  • Merchant business models and investment landscape for batteries - 19:29
